WHAT IS OCULOPLASTIC SURGERY?
Oculoplastic Surgery, or Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is a subspecialty of Ophthalmology. It includes a variety of medical and surgical procedures that deal with the orbit, eyelids, tear ducts and face.
This specialty includes ocular and facial reconstructive surgery, orbital surgery, aesthetic eyelid surgery, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic procedures. Commonly, people hear the phrase "plastic surgery" and think about procedures done on larger sections of the body - they rarely think about the eyes.
